To really know me well, you have to know that I love goat cheese (or chèvre or whatever you want to call it.)
I love the tart flavor and consistency. When I found out that I could tour a goat cheese farm in the French countryside, I was beside myself. As you can see from the photo, I really do take my goat cheese eating pretty seriously, as I came home from the farm with all of this loot! Goat cheese that was soft, aged, coated in pepper, spices and shallots. I had the best cheese tasting of my life! The one thing that I noted in my tasting was that these cheeses tasted much less salty. I later learned that goat cheesees are often heavily treated with salt to prevent decay.
